Additional Resources

Study Guide

Free interdisciplinary study guides are emailed to teachers at least two weeks prior to performance dates. Study guides include information on the play and production, as well as activity suggestions and worksheets for classroom use.

Q-and-A with the Actors

Free 15-minute Q-and-A sessions are available immediately following a performance to provide students with an opportunity to meet the actors and discuss the show.


Custom hands-on workshops, presented by the professional cast of Imaginary Theatre Company, are offered as an enhancement to the theatre experience and a supplement to classroom learning. Using theatre exercises, students will explore the discipline and skills used by actors to create characters and communicate meaning. Specific activities are chosen based on the participants’ grade level.
